About Me

My photo
I am a stay-at-home mom. I have been married to my handsome and wonderful husband for over 14 years. Right now he's battling stomach/esophagus cancer. So I do my best to craft when I can. I have two wonderful boys. My oldest, Garett, is 24 and served 5 years in the Navy. He's been home since the beginning of the year (2014). We are very proud of him. My youngest, "DJ", is 13 and in the 8th grade. I have two Border Collie mix dogs (Koda and Rugu), one Calico cat (Hydie), one orange Tabby cat (Bosley), one Tea Cup Chihuahua (Gigi...I LOVE her sooo much), a Chiweinnie (Lily....sweetest dog ever), and a Jack Russell/Chihuahua (Connor....AAALL boy).

Grassy Days

My friend, Denise, is having issues with her blog and posting so I'm going to post this for her using my blog.  So this is her entry...not mine.

Her card was made using the Unity January Kit of the Month.

I love her blue flowers in the tree :)

Silver and Metallics

Happy FWF

So this card I made just playing around with my metallic pencils and set it up for Splitcoast Stampers Card Sketch Challenge.  I love the way this came out.  I took a close up pic so you can see how rich the colors came out here...however the camera still doesn't do the colors justice.

The stamp I used was from the December 2012 KOM and the sentiment is from a grab bag.  Thanks for stopping by and have a fab weekend.

Happy Friday everyone...

This is the sample card I made for the Lawn Fawn Challenge we have going on over at Mountain Plains Crafters.

I used the Whitney Girl and Deer to Me Stamps all watercolored in.

Come on over and join us for fun and win some Lawn Fawn stamps and paper.

Pregnancy Congrats

Found out today that my LOOOONG time best friend's son and his wife are having a baby.  SOOOO.....I just HAD to make a card.  I have been wanting to use these cute silhouette stamps from Unity for a long time and now I finally got to ink one up.
 I took a plain black card and sprayed it with pink paint mist, pink shimmer mist, and silver shimmer mist.  The tag was sprayed with pink paint mist, pink shimmer mist, and silver shimmer mist.  I used silver washi tape and placed a "Congratulations!" rub-on over one of them.  Added a few sequins and POOF....instant shimmery cute card for the not-so-girly girl.  :)
